The card has numbers of Uttar Pradesh women's helpline, GRP control room, GRP Lucknow control room as well as of police stations under North-Central Railway division, the sources said.
"If a woman faces harassment in train, she can dial the numbers given on the card and lodge her complaint. A team of GRP in the next station would come to her help," Circle Officer, GRP, Surinder Tiwari said.
"Women can complain about harassment to the GRP staff present in the train also," he said.
"We want every woman to take a lesson from the brave 'Nirbhaya' and raise their voice against gender-based violence," Tiwari said.
'Nirbhaya', the 23-year-old paramedical student who was brutally gang-raped by six men in a moving bus on December 16, 2012 in Delhi, succumbed in a Singapore hospital.
